By the Mayne Island Parks & Recreation Commission

Mayne Hiking MapThis is dedicated to all the parks volunteers who contribute so much. Be it cutting grass, looking after the putting green, tending our trails or Japanese Garden – our community would be much diminished without their assistance. We also thank those who have donated money, goods or services to the Commission and to our projects. A big thank you to the other very community-minded island organizations, including the Lions, the Silver Maynes, the Conservancy, the AMIB and the Garden Club for working with us to further our mission of having beautiful spaces for people to gather, to rest and recreate, and to enjoy nature at its best. (Also a tip of the hat to our Regional Director, Dave Howe, and to the CRD sta being there when we need assistance).

PLEASE Tread Lightly

Tread LightlyEnjoy our many parks and trails, but please respect our fragile environment. Henderson Park in particular is experiencing a restoration program in partnership with the Mayne Island Conservancy, so please stay on the trails and do not remove any plants. (Most native plants are found in nurseries.)

Remember, our parks are a legacy to leave our children and grandchildren, and we want them to speak well of our stewardship. Volunteers maintain our island trails and parks — those who look after our trails are called Trail Guardians. If you see a Trail Guardian on your hike, take a few seconds to tell them how much you appreciate their work – these volunteers make it possible for you to enjoy low impact recreation and nature at its nest. Public toilet facilities are noted on the island map. Don’t forget to carry drinking water.

The Interpretive Nature Trail in Henderson Park was financed and constructed by the Mayne Island Conservancy Society. The I.N.T. showcases the natural and human history of the park and the wonderful ora and fauna to be found in the park. The I.N.T. was completed in 2012
